was recently diagnosed with prostate cancer. thankfully i caught it very early & i'm still young (52). i have been eating very healthy for many months now & have lost 52 lbs. (from 220 to 168). i was slightly concerned about my weight loss. im not obsessed with loosing weight...thinking it was just a byproduct of eating well. however, i lost 6 lbs just this week. i have not decided on a treatment yet, but am seeking a second opinion. should i be worried about my weight loss? just had a colonoscopy & everything looks great! my full body bone scan looked great also. thanks for any help!
